They can't say they weren't warned.



[personal profile] q99 requested some Fantomah, who's among the best-known creations of cult favourite Fletcher Hanks (writing and drawing as Barclay Flagg). So here we go!

'Fantomah wills it!' )

Gather 'round, folks, and come with me back to the sixties and seventies, a time when people still made comics primarily for kids. When comics had yet to compete with video games, specialized summer camps and obsessive helicopter parenting for kids' attention. When no one expected comics to make profound literary statements, nor shock readers with nonstop mutilation and gore, nor follow the laws of physics, biology or basic logic.



This was the heyday of Harvey Comics, and its flagship character, Richie Rich. Today remembered, if at all, for the flop 1994 Macaulay Culkin movie, or deconstructed and mocked as the face of greedy, heartless capitalism, the (not so) Poor Little Rich Boy was in fact much more than that. He was the linchpin of a bizarre, often mad universe in which anything could happen. Multi-billionaires were altruistic and generous, and their kids socialized with and dated the 99 per cent. Money didn't solve everything, but it sure solved a lot. (Ridiculously multi-talented English butlers, zeerusty A.I.s, or sheer dumb luck solved the rest.) Plus-sized girls who loved food were also athletic and popular. Snobs and bullies were neither. Other girls with eccentric but harmless obsessions were allowed to be themselves, not disciplined or medicated into conformity. Crime was rampant but never involved drugs or human trafficking, and never maimed or killed anyone. This was Richie Rich's world.

Yes, the comics were silly; that's why I love them )

In the last issue, Dr. Hormone successfully bumbled through a secret air mission which hormonally transformed the invading Urasian army into loyal Novoslavian citizens. But the war isn't over yet.

Master of understatement, that premier

Doctor Hormone, he of upstanding medical ethics, has chemically transformed boys into an army of full-grown Novoslavian men. But will that be enough to withstand the Soviet Eurasian "Urasian" invasion, and the waning patience of Novoslavia's top general?

Let's find out )

Now that we've relived Identity Crisis (and survived to tell of it), let's take a trip back to the Golden Age, when members of the JLA's predecessor underwent their own, somewhat different crises of identity. This issue-length Gardner Fox story, from All Star Comics #30 (Aug-Sept 1946), is so delightfully cracky it took four artists to illustrate it. It previously appeared, way back when, on s_d 1.0, so no better time to post it again.

Sorry, Mistah J, but as far as grim, unlucky origin stories go, I think this villain may have you beat. From the disturbed imagination of Golden Age cult favourite Fletcher Hanks (as Barclay Flagg), this is the story of Zomax, featuring Fantomah, Mystery Woman of the Jungle. It's from Jungle Comics #14 (Fiction House, February 1941), which is in the public domain (scans courtesy of Comic Book Plus).

Oh my god, I haven't been in here like, forever. I find this image from some comic titled 'Georgie' to be very...odd. See if you can find out why!

I don't have any specific information on these... other than the fact that I pulled them out of the two ancient Imageshack accounts I had for the first two years of me hanging around Scans Daily. So they're just random images, no context. Hope you don't mind. ;p

Butts galore, mostly for the female lovers out there. )

Instead of explaining why I'm posting scans of DC Showcase #59 (1965), I'll let the teaser pic speak for itself...




... yep. More music, a weird rock band, 'hip language' and some things that just don't work that way behind the cut.

From the same school of thought that brought us these two panels...

Fair warning: there is a lot more head-desk where that came from.

[personal profile] sailorlibra requested Bronze Age Lois Lane. Here are 6 and a half pages from a 20-page story, "The Day Lois Lane Walked All Over Superman," from Superman Family #183, May-June 1977. It's also the story that gives us a rather famous image, one that I considered using as the preview image, but in the end I couldn't resist a lovely image from the Neal Adams-drawn cover, especially since it encapsulates part of the story I had to cut:


I-I'll do anything, Lois! J-just don't hurt me... )
Whatta ya think, gang? Cracky enough for ya?
